About Michael Hudson

I work abroad and work full time so I am not able to visit my villa as often as I would like. I rent this villa to others, not so much as a business, but rather to assist in covering the costs of having a beautiful home in the Mediterranean.

Michael Hudson purchased this villa in 2011

Why Michael Hudson chose Kyrenia Region

I love Northern Cyprus because of the quiet unspoiled lifestyle. The views are wonderful with a range of bars and restaurants. There are many interesting places to visit and always with incredible views There is really something for everyone here.

What makes this villa unique

I love to sit outside by the pool at night having wonderful dinner and sometime with the lights off and star gaze with a cold drink. I also enjoy the views of the mountains with the various weather systems changing in the early mornings. I am also lucky to have very friendly and kind neighbours who have all made me very welcome.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after two wonderful weeks in this lovely villa . The villa is beautifully furnished so this really is s home from home very comfortable and relaxing .

The villa is in a nice quiet location with wonderful views to the sea and the mountains .there are many restaurants near by some within a short walk away . Not too far from kyrenia and dozens of beautiful beeches nearby . There's a super swimming pool to cool down in and the villa always seemed to have a lovely breeze in he evening keeping the mosquitos at bay !!. I'd certainly recommend this villa to anybody , both Michael the owner and Wendy who sees over cleanliness of the villa on your arrival were both very attentive and helpful throughout the booking and during outstay should we require anything . As for myself I shall return to the villa soon for another relaxing holiday :))

Fantastic Villa and even better people to deal with. Both Michael and Wendy were so attentive and it really was an absolute pleasure to deal with such nice folk.

The description given on villa listing doesn't do it justice, it's fabulous and so homely and the pool is incredible.

The Villa is superb, location is so relaxing and the weather we had could not have been bettered. We are already planning when we can return to Michaels's Villa.

Superb holiday villa !!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic two week holiday in this idyllic holiday villa.

The property is stylish and perfectly suited to a holiday to maximise the lovely sunny summer of North Cyprus.

The setting is peaceful and private with fabulous views of the nearby mountain. The swimming pool is perfect for lazing beside, cooling off in or enjoying breakfast or an evening drink beside. I would never tire of the view of the dramatic mountain behind, especially when the evening sun lights it up.

The transfer to & from Larnaca Airport and the hire car were organised through the owner in advance and worked perfectly and Michael was very helpful with booking dates to fit our schedule.

There are plenty of lovely coves and beaches in easy reach and many restaurants and some super seafront bars / restaurants (Silver Rocks is well worth a visit). If you get the chance you must go and see baby turtles being released by the various conservation groups .... a very special experience.

I would heartily recommend the property.

Wonderful relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

I have to be honest and stay that i didnt realise the villa was in the TRNC when i booked so the lead up to the holiday was spent doing internet searches to check the area out. No seriously bad reviews of the Kyrenia area found so far so good but still apprehensive. The flight to Paphos was uneventful and a hire car was picked up, google maps set up, with an excellent digital GPS position provided by Wendy, and off we went. The trip to the border took approx 2 hours on nice dual carriageway with a half hour stop for a drink en-route. The border crossing involved our passports being scammed and me purchasing a weeks worth of 3rd party insurance for the hire car. This cost me the princely sum of 35TL for the 7 day stay.

Border negotiated we were in the TRNC and what a difference. the roads were not as good there were speed cameras everywhere but and it is a big but the drivers to the north were courteous and seemed to obey speed limits and rules of the road, unlike some european countries i have driven in. They also drive on the left in cyprus so no different from home.

The drive from the border to the villa took about an hour.

The villa itself is situated in a quite rural area with stunning views of the mountains. It is well presented inside and the stone flooring throughout help keep the villa cool, i only turned the aircon on to see how it worked.

The pool was a tad chilly for the rest of the family but was used by myself on several occasions.

The beds are quite low level but comfortable and there is plenty of seating for the family.

The local area has a multitude of restaurants to eat at with 1 within walking distance. there are also plenty of local supermarkets that are open until late.

The only complaint that i have is the neighbours have dogs that tend to bark day and night, not all the time but on several days it was at between 2 and 3 in the morning. And if the bedroom windows are open are open you do hear the local mosque calling the faithful to prayer, first call being at 0515!

On the whole though we had a great week eating at great restaurants ( sliver rocks, Benjamins, Flippers, Canos ) and staying in a wonderful villa.

I would thoroughly recommend the villa. The owner and his agent were helpful at all stages

Owner's Response: I am pleased to learn that you have enjoyed the holiday in North Cyprus and for recommendation of the villa. I hope we can serve you again in the future. As for the prayer early call, one has to expect to hear, sometimes, the call since North Cyprus is a Muslim Country. However, you will not hear it if the windows are closed since the village mosque is far away from the villa. As for dog bark (not barking all the times as you mentioned in your review), the next door villa has been rented temporally and the tent will be moving soon hence this issue will be solved. I have no control on the dog bark but again you do not hear the bark if the windows are closed.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Hiking tours for people of all ages and physical ability are organized by a number of centres in the Kyrenia area generally conducted in the Kyrenia mountain range. One particular tour party, organized by 'association of mountaineering', meets every Sunday during winter season, and every fortnight during summer months. During the winter, the tour programme is published at the beginning of every month explaining the route and where to meet etc. All walks endeavour to show interesting natural and historical features. The tours generally start in the morning and last for three hours. The fire breaks which are cleared into the mountain side during the spring and summer are ideal for exciting downhill mountain by bike. There are also plenty of more gentle off road slopes at the edge of the range.


Public and private beaches are with 5/10 minutes’ drive/walk away. The local beach has two small restaurants. There are a few high quality beach clubs with private beaches, pools, water sports, showers, and cafes. Also 30 minutes’ drive from the famous turtle beach.

lapta which is the next village along has plenty of bars and restaurants and a good water park for the children and adults. 30 minutes’ drive further up the coast you have the busy town Kyrenia with the Venetian harbour.


Ercan is the nearest airport and 40 minutes’ drive to Karsiyaka. Car hire is available and advisable for supermarket shopping and sightseeing. Flights to Larnaca in the south are more frequent and shorter as they don't have to touch down in turkey. Larnaca is about 90 minutes’ drive with a simple border crossing to the north. It is possible to hire a car in the south and stay in the north providing you take additional insurance at the border crossing,to cover third party.


Local village shop is well within walking distance. Local park with swings, pool table, bar, etc is 5 min walk down hill and local restaurant is five minutes’ walk up the hill where you can watch sunset as you dine.

in Kyrenia there is a splendid Venetian harbour, around which are many restaurants & bars. It is one of the prettiest harbour in the Mediterranean. Overlooking the harbour in Kyrenia is a splendid castle which houses a fascinating shipwreck museum.

Further Details:

Most hotels allow non-residents to have access to their pools if refreshments are purchased there.

there are also two water parks. The dedicated water park in Catalkoy has slides and organized activities for children in the summer whilst the smaller park in lapta is 10 minutes’ drive from the villa.

there are several scuba diving schools around the coast. Wreck diving is available. Snorkelling is a popular activity in the clear waters of the Mediterranean. There are many other water sports available within 15 minutes’ drive of the villa including jet ski hire, speed boat hire, banana and doughnut riding, fishing trips, and even paragliding behind a boat.

paint balling can be enjoyed at sunset beach in lapta, plus other fun activities for you and your children.

Boat trips can be booked from the harbour in kyrenia.

for those who wish to see the sights on horseback there is a riding club. They do beginners lessons and do trail riding visiting local landmarks for the more experienced. There is also horse riding available in the mountains about 20 minutes away from the villa

the cmc golf club near guzelyurt or the brand new korineum golf and country club in esentepe.

you can hire bikes from many main hotels.

The 220km long bespamark and kyrenia mountain chain spans east to west. It begins at the zafer cape on the easternmost tip near to kantara castle and reaches cape korucam on the westernmost edge. Exceptional views, stunning craggy castles, hidden monasteries and churches, beautiful natural scenery and exciting hiking and biking challenges.

there are a number of casinos in the area with food and drinks on the house.

there are countless great restaurants available from traditional Cypriot / Turkish, to fine European cuisine, fish specialists, a Brazilian steak house, Indian food, Chinese food, stone grill, pizza, and kleftico.
